A new Facebook group has started: Toronto Transit operators against public harassment. TTC employees are angry over commuters snapping pictures of some of them who were sleeping on the job or stopping for extended coffee breaks. They plan to snap back.
This has gotten out of hand! Once upon a time, in a kinder gentler Toronto, the bus driver would park and get some of his shopping done. At which point I'd take off my pants and open a can of Colt 45.
What caused this social break down between drivers and patrons of the TTC? Are we so vain that we can't look over each other's shortcomings?
The next time you see someone asleep at their post, put your camera away. Take a nap, too. Or else they may take your picture later on when you spray paint your initials on the side of a bus.
